Recording Functions

The recording functions are available to members with a user ID belonging to the recorder group.

The first three functions, Categorize Images, Identify Rock Art Elements, and Define Rock Art Element Attributes must be completed in sequence for new surveys. Use of the remaining functions are optional, but most recorders will make use of them to improve the quality and accuracy of their survey.

  • CategorizeImages assigns each image in a survey to an Image Category or type such as rock art, pottery, etc. and groups rock art images by panel.

  • IdentifyRockArtElements identifies rock art elements on the images.

  • DefineRockArtElementAttributes assigns General Attributes and Class Specific Attributes to each element. In Addition, the element's cropping, patina selection, element size, Rock Art Class or comments related to the element may be changed.

  • CheckSurveyData requeues or deletes images and adds, changes, or deletes recording entries.

  • CheckAttributeSet sorts and displays all elements or panel images and the selected attribute set. Attributes may be updated.

  • CustomizeTopoCharts customizes the topo charts created by the DigitalRockArt application.

  • Convert UTM to Distance-Bearing provides an easy way to convert UTMs to the distance bearing measurements used by DigitalRockArt.

  • AnnotateImages place cluster numbers, panel numbers or plain text on top of the images. Cluster and panel numbers create hyper-links to open new windows displaying cluster or panel detail.

  • RenumberPanelsOrElements renumbers clusters, revises panel letters, renumbers elements and renames image files.

  • JpgFileUpload uploads new or replacement images.

  • CheckElementPixels creates six reports to aid photographers. Verifies that each rock art element has been captured in sufficient detail.

  • UpdateElementsFromNotebook updates rock art elements using a notebook as the list of elements to be processed.
